The MP is built on the Barrie last, which has less arch support that the 55 last on which the Bounty Hunter (by definition) is constructed. If you want even more arch, you can go with the 4811 "smokejumper" last in a 6" boot... you choose the sole.So, I'm currently on the fence between ordering a pair of Bounty Hunters or MPs. One of my issues is that I wear custom orthotics for a metatarsal issue (which I don't know if I'd still need with arch ease or not because my issue is pain in the ball of my foot).
How is the arch ease in the MP compared to the BHs? Would they better permit wesring an insert?
In any case, if you add an orthotic, I order one width wider to accommodate. The 55 or 4811 would be a better choice to pair with an orthotic in my humble opinion because there is more toe box volume with these than with the sleeker Barrie.
